New Here - Recent Ectopic

I'm so frustrated with my body now. I'm still waiting on my period to show after an Ectopic treated with MTX.

April 4th - Went into the ER at 6 weeks for heavy bleeding and pain. hCG was only 15 and ultrasound showed Ectopic and was treated with MTX.
April 7th - Follow up blood draw - hCG already down to <1
April 10th - Final follow up blood draw - hCG down to 0

I only bled heavy for about 3 days, and then lite bleeding/spotting for a couple more. It's now been 5 weeks since my injection and still no period. My OB said we need to wait 3 months / 2 cycles and I swear at the rate I'm going it feels like that's never going to happen. :(

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had an ectopic pregnancy September 2015. It took a while to feel "normal". We waited until January 2016 to try again. I know it can feel like forever but it's really important to take that time. The methotrexate shot (from what I've read and my doctor) basically sucks all the folic acid from your body. What helped me through that time was focusing on taking my prenatal vitamins to make sure that folic acid was back in my system and working out to get in better shape for when I became pregnant again. I think it helped me to get pregnant again. The first time it took us 8-9 months. After the ectopic, once we started trying again, it only took 3 cycles. We had a healthy baby girl in December of 2016.
